Saturday Night and almost nothing to do

DH and I had a relaxing day today after shopping at Target and the grocery store this morning. I have a painful callus on the bottom of my foot that I am trying to get rid of and I can't do much walking so an afternoon and evening on the couch was just the ticket. I am almost done with the binding on the quilt for Tasha's nephew. I'll probably finish it early tomorrow.

Dianne shared with me her tip for using hair clips for holding on binding instead of using pins. So today I invested in two packages of the clips. I used them on the quilt I am currently binding and they are great! Thanks for the suggestion Dianne. I only bought 24 clips so I will be on the lookout for more the next time I'm at Target. Mmmmm . . . I wonder if the Sally Beauty Supply store carries a larger bag of them. I'll have to check that out this week.

Calico Cat started this one so I thought I'd join in.

Loved your meme, have been meaning to do it but too many other ideas keep popping into my head as I start typing! Pleased hub and you had a good 'shop' and I also hope there are plenty of times the'casual'china comes out while he cooks tea! (Thanks for the comment!)

Hi Sweet Pea, I have a bunch of hairclips I bought for this purpose and decided I really like pins much better. They sit unused in a drawer. If you will send me your name and address I will be happy to send them to you. There are a bunch of them taking up drawer space - I'd love to share them with someone who will use them.

I love using those binding clips too. I never thought of just buying regular hair clips --DUH. I'll have to check into that as I could use a few more and I bet they are cheaper than the quilty ones!

I too love those clips. Mine don't get too much use though....I usually machine bind my quilts. What can I say, I've adopted the motto done is better than perfect
